Additional comments King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show. Taken from the original rare original 2LP that I own. Despite it should be a recording of the Prince's Trust Rock Gala (Dominion Theatre, London UK), it becomes clear looking at the cue sheets that there is something wrong here. They speak about the Prince's Trust Rock Gala held at Hammersmith Odeon, which of course is incorrect as this is the venue where the live album Alchemy was recorded. The recording itself is very strange aswell; you can hear the speaker talk about the gala, announcing Princes Diana and Prince Chales, followed by a short speech of Prince Charles. All actual recorded from the gala. But when the music starts, it is clearly taken from Alchemy. So, a mixture of two sources here, too bad! What is remarkable, is that the short speech of Mark Knopfler just before Going home is actually taken from the Prince's Trust Rock Gala. All in all a weird recording, but at least with some actual recording from the charity gala.
